Grizzlies Fans vs. Tony Parker: The Eva Longoria Poster Comes out in Game 3

One of the most well-documented battles of the 2013 NBA playoffs has come between San Antonio Spurs point guard Tony Parker and the Memphis Grizzlies.

During Game 3 of the teams' Western Conference Finals, that rivalry was taken to another level.

The ex-factor was brought into play.

Despite the distractions, Parker ended up going 3-for-3 from the free-throw line.

For those unfamiliar, Parker and Eva Longoria were married from 2007 to 2011. The two were involved in a high-profile divorce, which makes this attempt at taunting Parker all the more personal.

When a player does this to your team, retaliation is expected.
We've grown accustomed to seeing fans clash with the star player of an opposing franchise, but this is an approach that walks a thin line of appropriate fan behavior. Parker has not expressed his distaste with the signs, but one can't help but think that it would irk him.

Just imagine if someone held up a photograph of your ex-spouse every time you went to work.

The question is: Does this behavior cross any lines? Or were the Grizzlies fans in the right and simply utilized their sense of humor in sign creation?
